Alton Brown to develop Zombie Cooking Show

Alton Brown


"And just so you know…I am working on a zombie cooking show spoof. My zombie cooking show doesn’t have a home yet though…I’m guessing youtube as I doubt #foodnetwork will appreciate it. brain brûlée, brain chili, brain cake, brain sliders, brain on the half skull…" [via @AltonBrown - full tweet: https://twitter.com/#!/altonbrown/status/200911207312539648 ]

My input: not enough statements of "AWESOME" can be said.

How can something that has "Alton Brown", "Zombie", "Cooking", and "Show" not be more awesome?

Get an RSS feed for Twitter Searches

I tried to get an RSS feed for a Twitter search earlier today, and found out that they removed the ability to get an RSS or Atom feed from their searches.
Twitter - No RSS

Luckily, I had some saved RSS feeds in my Reader from a long time ago, and found the URL setup:

  1. The URL for the page should look like this (in the example above):
     https://twitter.com/#!/search/ice%20cream 
  2. Replace "https://twitter.com/#!/search/" with the following:
     search.twitter.com/search.atom?q= 
  3. The URL should look like this now:
     http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=ice%20cream 
  4. Copy the URL and transmit that to your favorite reader. Now you have an RSS feed for your search!
See? Simple.

Double Twitter Explosion!

This has been one great day! I submitted an article to the popular social media site SocialMediaToday.com and I can't believe how much it has spread across the corners of the 'net. I submitted it less than 24 hours ago, and it has received more retweets and shares than I can track!

Here's a quick overview:
On SMT, it has 109 LinkedIn shares, 12 Facebook Shares, and 97 Tweets
Twitter Trend


To make things better, it was also picked up by TweetMeMe's Twitter account, @TM_Twitr
TweetMeMe


TweetMeMe has 39 retweets alone:

I know some of the other big-wig article writers have somewhere around 1k shares, but for my first article published outside of the company website, I call 257 shares within 24 hours a success!

Not too bad for an article that was a quick idea and written in about 3 hours!
